Go to benchmarking website at

  • You do not have to be a member of ASPR to participate
  • The survey is not open to search firms of any kind

How do I get a username and password?

  • Go to the benchmarking website
  • New Users should select “Register”
  • You will be allowed to select your own username and password
  • This password will be used to complete your survey AND access your finalized results

How many surveys do I need to submit?

  • Complete one survey per organization
  • Organizations that cover multiple states and it is unfeasible to submit one for their entire organization, may contact the Benchmarking Chair for a waiver

What questions will be asked on the survey?

  • The survey report is composed of three sections: Demographic information, Searches, Recruitment Compensation. There is also a “Help” tab and a “Feedback” tab that allows you to share your suggestions.
  • Demographics Tab: Basic information about your organization, your department, and your work as a whole.
  • Searches Tab: Information specific to each search you worked on during the year, such as specialty, population, number of applicants, the current status of the search, etc.
  • Recruitment Compensation: This asks information about your recruitment department, titles, experience, and education level.

Where do I enter compensation information?

  • Once you complete the “Recruitment Compensation” tab, you will be asked to provide contact information for your HR department.
  • Industry Insights will contact your HR rep to report compensation for the members of your department listed in the “Recruitment Compensation” tab.

Why can’t I enter my own compensation?

  • Self-reported compensation is not considered reliable as a basis of determining salary.
  • By requiring HR reporting, you can use this salary data as a means of adjusting salary based on education, title, or experience.

How will I know if my HR department has completed the information?

  • Check back at the survey site and select the “Recruitment Compensation” tab.
  • If the box titled “HR Complete” is checked, your compensation data has been received.

Why can’t I see the compensation data entered?

  • For purposes of confidentiality, the compensation data is inaccessible to everyone.
  • Some organizations might allow multiple employees to enter their own data related to searches. Having the compensation data inaccessible prevents any inadvertent breaches of confidential information
